Jim Jordan: ‘Fauci Was Consumed With Changing Lab Leak Narrative Because They Were Doing Gain Of Function Research There’
“He didn’t want that out.”
Congressman Jim Jordan outlined Sunday how Anthony Fauci became aware that the most likely cause of the COVID pandemic was a lab leak and immediately set about changing the narrative to hide his involvement in gain of function research.
Appearing on Fox Business, Jordan, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, noted how Fauci received emails from prominent scientists advising him that the virus looked like it was engineered in a lab.
“Right at the start, that same day, Dr. Fauci organizes a conference call. Him and Dr. Collins get on there with Dr. Garry and Dr. Andersen and all these other virologists. They get on there. And, three days later, everybody changes their story,” Jordan noted.
The Congressman continued, “The same guy who said this would be easy to do in a lab says, oh, now you’re crazy if you think it came from a lab. The same guy that says, I don’t know how this — that this would — that this does — that looks engineered, he changes his story.”
“And then the kicker is, three months later, those same two doctors, Dr. Andersen and Dr. Garry, get a $7 million — a several-million-dollar grant from Dr. Fauci to continue their research,” Jordan further noted.
“So the fundamental question is, why was Dr. Fauci so consumed with making sure the narrative wasn’t about the lab? I think it’s because they were doing gain of function research there. He didn’t want that out,” Jordan urged.
“And that was the narrative that everyone on the left bought into, even though the facts and common sense, maybe most importantly, pointed to the lab leak theory,” he concluded.
Jordan’s comments come in the wake of Fauci being accused by Congressional investigators of having ‘prompted’ the fabrication of a paper by the scientists mentioned aimed at disproving the Covid-19 lab-leak theory.
The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic notes that “New evidence released by the Select Subcommittee today suggests that Dr. Fauci “prompted” the drafting of a publication that would “disprove” the lab leak theory, the authors of this paper skewed available evidence to achieve that goal, and Dr. Jeremy Farrar went uncredited despite significant involvement.”
Of course, this has been known since the very beginning, and was continually highlighted on this website and many others.
